Lying down in my bed after long day watching how Lakshmi steers the show with some extraordinary people have always inspired me. I’ve been a big follower of ‘The Chai with Lakshmi’ show ever since, Lakshmi is a very strong character, with amazing attitude toward life.
When I met Lakshmi on a casual meet at my place last year, we shared a lot and both knew we had some connect.
- August 13, 2014 I fb messaged: Lakshmi it was amazing to meet you …I feel so good today. Hmm there is lot I told u and lots I missed out .. anyway I often have thought when I see movies like Black, or TaareZameenPar is to seek your partnership to create a movie based on love .relationship .sex and women on wheels. Indians movies have not done any theme on this.. Neither has our society been open for such encounters. But a movie can leave a mark at this space. What you think? A simple story line with an intense character play? I just want to know if this makes sense to you? If it does we can align everything to make it happen
Today, it is all conceived together as I am so thrilled and wowed being part of ‘The Lakshmi Rebecca Show‘. Lakshmi connected all the dots together when I received a call to be in a show featuring Kalki Koechlin who played lead role in the movie “Margarita with a straw” to have a conversation on “Women, Disability & Sexuality”.
Over a decade these topics were sidelined, ignored … we realize the taboo that silenced, being stereotypes and disabled people’s sexuality has been suppressed and destroyed, over many centuries.
But, today in a modern era its about shifting attitudes, instilling awareness and enhancing lives. While these topic make ways in thinking outside the box, to vision change and acceptance, by large inclusion in society.
While the western world has swirled these subjects for many years now, how do we close the gap?
I have been receiving great feedback from many, I think it’s the right moment we redefine the peculiarity about Women, Disability & Sexuality 🙂
